I'd like to hear peoples opinions on bed sharing. I think as long as parents take precautions its fine. Precautions like if your a hard sleeper DONT do it, or a bed side rail to prevent falling they make special ones for toddler beds that work for adult beds too. Stuff like that makes the risks much much less. I dont really think a baby should sleep right next to an adult body because of the risk but if you can make a safe section of the bed for your baby it is ok. I bed share with my baby, He has his special spot on our California king bed he sleeps on a special pillow to stop him from rolling it has a strap to stop him from sliding. I love this arrangement because all i have to do is lift my head to check on him or if he fusses a little I just have to reach over to calm him. It prevents him from waking up completely. I sleep better with him right next to me and I think he sleeps better too. I know that pretty soon he will have to start sleeping in his crib but for now I'm confident that my baby is safe co sleeping with us.
